In response to the overwhelming amount of requests inundating our
office, we at the Heritage Foundation of Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries,
(a.k.a. HFPJC) hereby announce the establishment of the Maintenance
Division as an integral function of our organization.
Instrumental in the complete renovation of tens of neglected and
vandalized cemeteries throughout Eastern Europe, particularly in Hungary,
Romania, Slovakia, Western Ukraine and Serbia, our volunteer organization is
dedicated to assisting families who are interested in reconstructing the
gravesites of their ancestors.
Following the tremendous success of our initial efforts, we are now
advancing to another dimension hitherto inapplicable; namely, the
maintenance and protection of those reconstructed cemeteries. For those who
have expressed an interest in a formal plan of action to ensure the
cemeteries' year-round supervision, the Maintenance Division provides the
opportunity for Jews worldwide to take an active part in the preservation
and safeguarding of their ancestor's final resting places.

any cemetery, please contact us at:
